Thank you for considering giving a rescued horse a new life.
Thoroughbreds are beautiful, intelligent, fast and have the desire to please. Sadly, most of their racing careers are over at age three or four. Some of our rescues are retired from racing due to an injury, some are simply not fast enough to compete on the track. They’re out, but they’re not done: they can excel in other areas and are waiting for their forever home.
Day Trader, now known as Luna, is a 2015 OTTB mare with the flash and personality to make a great addition to your herd. She needs time off and won’t be a jumper but she may be a trail horse that will turn heads!
Musical Beat, better known as Maverick is an 2001 year old gelding OTTB who was retired in 2006 from racing when he fractured his sesamoid. He healed well after time off and became a trail horse. He’s a big boy with a big personality. Loves people and going for easy rides on the trails.
Swidgen better known as Hunter is a 2008 OTTB gelding with damaged knees who will never be ridden again. He is an attractive horse that could be a great companion horse. He is too young to live at a rescue for the rest of his life. We hope someone could open their home to him so they can enjoy his company as much as we do!
Out side lookin in also known as Valentino is a 2014 OTTB gelding. He was rescued from the Race Track. He had a crack in his right front sesamoid. He still needs some time off but will be rideable in time. Very nice disposition.
Dominick is a 2013 OTTB gelding who was rescued from the Race Track. He had bow tendons and fractured sesamoid. He won’t be a jumper but will be rideable for trails very soon.
